Default audio device changes after reconnect to VDI

Jannik D




We are using Windows 10 pooled desktops as VDIs on full windows 10 fat clients.

We also use DesktopLock to ensure, that our users only have access to the VDI session.


Now, when a user selects an audio device as default (e.g Sennheiser Headset) and disconnects from the session and reconnects again, the audio device switches to the monitor or other connected audio devices. The user has to switch it back to the sennheiser manually.


Is there any possible way, to change this behaviour and restore the preffered audio device at a reconnect?


Kind Regards,

This issue sounds familiar to me, the CleanMappingWhenDisconnect RegKey solved it for me, please refer to:


Thanks for the input! 

I already tried that key before but without any effects. Still, the audio device has changed after the reconnect.


Kind Regards,
